Jameson Martin was the presidential candidate who needed a wife. I needed a way out of debt.
The moment I agreed to be his pretend fiancée, all our problems should have been solved. Instead, things got complicated.
Publicly, we were the picture of patriotic perfection.
Privately, we struggled with the one thing that wasn’t in our plan – more.
I didn’t realize how lonely my life was until Jameson filled it with everything I was missing. His passionate commitment to public service earned my vote; his icy blue gaze and the way he gave me a purpose stole my heart. But I wanted to be his partner, not his secret. And I wanted the one thing that Jameson struggled to give me – his heart.
Georgie is struggling to keep her family home. Presidential candidate Jameson Martin needs a fiance′ to boost his numbers in the polls. He proposes that Georgie be his fiance′ for five million dollars. The deal would get Georgie out of financial ruin. She takes the job. What they don’t plan for is feelings developing. Jameson does not want to be distracted from getting to the Oval Office. Georgie is putting her heart on the line no matter if they make it to the presidency or not.
In an Oyster Shell – A steamy story with a solid, intriguing story.
The Pearls – The concept was interesting. I liked that there was a single Presidential candidate in need of a wife. I like stories where couples pose in relationships and have the potential to become something more.
Georgie was a strong character. Her capacity to love was moving. I liked that the author gave her quirks like a palate of a toddler as Jameson said about her. Jameson was a stoic character that had a lot of internal conflicts that made the story enjoyable.
The book had a lot of external conflicts that ensued in a lot of action. It made for a page turning read. The conflicts that came up were imaginative and exciting. The storyline was rock solid with all the right elements.
The romance was steamy with a side of sweet. It took most of the book for the romance to develop. It was paced nicely.
The Sand – It wasn’t a clean novel.
